no need for arguments

"Conversation, indeed!" said the Rocket. "You have talked the whole time yourself. That is not conversation."
"Somebody must listen," answered the Frog, "and I like to do all the talking myself. It saves time, and prevents arguments."
"But I like arguments," said the Rocket.
"I hope not," said the Frog complacently. "Arguments are extremely vulgar, for everybody in good society holds exactly the same opinions."

Oscar Wilde - from "The Remarkable Rocket", in "The Happy Prince and Other Tales", 1888

I like the Frog this time. I very much like the good society of The Frog.
